Only question is why the Reds should spend on CF with Hamilton in the wings.
Nobody wants to improve CF more than me, but I can't see a big deal for a Fowler or Span, or a major FA signing, when the CFer of the future is at AAA and destined to be a Red soon.
LF, on the other hand, is empty right now with Ludwick as a FA. I'd think the "bigger" signing should be a LFer, where there is no Billy Hamilton on the horizon.
As for Choo, one problem is he is a FA after next year; and a Boras client. He'd be my choice as a player, but it seems unlikely that the Reds could work this out - don't want to give up the farm for a rental.
